Paul is a nationally recognized expert on sustainable investing, and the host of the popular Sustainable Finance Podcast, a weekly program featuring conversations with thought leaders in the field. His guests include cleantech entrepreneurs and VC investors; CEOs leading the low-carbon economy transition; creators of the ESG indices and analytics platforms everyone is using; and NGO executives bridging the public/private partnership funding chasm through digital banking and blockchain-based technologies.
In addition to his podcast series, Paul works with both individual advisors and large investment firms to integrate ESG investing into their portfolio and sales strategies. Incorporating his knowledge of current investor trends, the most robust ESG analytics, and the latest technology trading solutions, Paul helps his clients capitalize on the growing business opportunities in the transition to a low-carbon economy.

He co-authored an article about impact investing for Investments & Wealth Monitor, and has moderated panels at Sustainable Investment Solutions events in Chicago, Minneapolis, Washington, DC, and Philadelphia. He was co-convener of the annual Sustainable Investing Conference at the United Nations in 2018 and 2019. Paul believes the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) exemplify the use of cross-sector collaboration, linking business, government, and civil society in support of people, planet, and profit–in that order.
